Fishing Report 04/16/2018

As we roll into the halfway point of April, the weather has been constantly getting better with warmer and warmer days. I love this time of the year, the fishing is spectacular, the weather gets nicer and nicer, and our guides have some availability and are anxious to get on the water and boat some fish. If you are open anytime the rest of this month and have been contemplating taking a guided trip, right now is a great time to go.

The shop is in full swing with all our new preseason merchandise and an updated bug selection. Come on in and lets chat fishing.
